In the studio - 'Bottled Up' Art Installation
“Bottled Up” art installation using suspended found bottles, 2019.
My latest art installation represents the repression of emotions through the visual form of suspended bottles - as we bottle up our emotions, they start piling up, hanging onto a thread, and once one moves they all move, entwining each other.
Without emotions, we are LIFELESS.
They are the true beauty of authentic expression.
They are an outer expression of our inner world.
They create connection with our very essence of being.
They give us FREEDOM to fly.
They give us a VOICE.
Made in Sydney, Australia.
